We all know the story of a Christmas Carol. It is a Christmas classic and one we have all seen at one point. So when I got the chance to review Disney’s version, I jumped on the chance. Of course, Disney- Mickey’s Christmas Carol follows in the same footsteps as the original. It just adds some kid friendly elements. So what is different about this version you ask? Well lets dive in and see what makes this version so special…
As I stated before this is just like the original, with a Disney twist. We start the movie seeing Scrooge. We all know Scrooge. In Disney’s version Scrooge is portrayed by none other than, who else but Scrooge McDuck. As we know he only cares about one thing- Money. His greed is his top priority. He has one employee that works for him at his counting house. His name is Bob Cratchet (portrayed by Mickey Mouse). Cratchet has a large family to take care of, which includes his son Tiny Tim. So when Cratchet asks Scrooge for time off on Christmas, Scrooge treats Bob with zero respect. He wants him to work on Christmas! So on Christmas Eve, after the counting house is closed for the day, Scrooge returns home. But when he arrives at home he has a guest. It is his old partner Jacob Marley (portrayed by Goofy). He tells Scrooge that because of his greed, he is forced to be shackled by chains for all time. Marley also tells Scrooge to not let this happen to him and that he has a chance to be saved. In order to be saved, Scrooge will be visited by 3 ghosts- Past, Present and Future. Will Scrooge listen to these wise spirits and be saved from himself? If you haven’t seen it, you will have to watch and find out!
Disney- Mickey’s Christmas Carol Blu-Ray/DVD also has great bonus features. There is Disney Intermission where Mickey invites you to sing Christmas Carols with Mickey and his pals. There are also 5 of the New Animated Shorts for you to enjoy. One of them is brand new, so don’t miss that one. This movie brings back so many memories from my childhood. It was nice to be able to go back and relive those. With that said, I highly recommend this movie. So grab a cup of hot chocolate and join your family in watching this classic. You won’t be disappointed!
